Jim Coffey designs and crafts custom furniture, cabinetry, and kitchens. His designs feature carefully selected book matched hardwoods, often with exquisite metal or wood inlays, and always with fascinating detail. Fusing the best of innovative design with impeccable construction and finishing, Jim creates heirloom pieces.
Obsessed with the craftsmanship he had witnessed in England, Jim devoured any literature on the subject he could find. He honed his skills guided by the masters but revamped, and reworked each piece to appease the artist within. His mentors include furniture icons James Krenov, Sam Maloof, and Art Carpenter but his best teacher was the medium itself.
Combining the passion of the artist and the dedication of the craftsman Jim works alone, dividing his time between handcrafted gallery furniture and furniture styled kitchens. With an ever increasing demand for both, the two distinct disciplines continue to inspire and feed each other.
Many of Jim’s furniture pieces feature oil on canvas painting inlays by his brother Steve Coffey.
Jim lives in Innisfail, Alberta.
